The third-generation Scarlett 18i8 from Focusrite is the perfect audio interface for recording engineers and producers who need to adapt to their recording environment, wherever they are. It offers eight analogue inputs: four mic/line inputs, two high-impedance, high-headroom instrument inputs, and four additional fixed-line inputs on the rear. An optical input allows for expansion of up to eight additional channels for larger recording sessions. Plus, with improved A-D and D-A conversion, your recordings and playback will sound clear and pronounced up to 24-bit/192kHz, vital to helping you perfect your mix.

Switchable Air Mode

Scarlett 18i8 provides two of Focusrite's best-ever-performing third-generation Scarlett mic preamps with switchable Air mode to give your vocal and acoustic recordings a brighter and more open sound. There's a pad on every mic preamp to accommodate higher-level signals without clipping.

Outputs

Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 offers two extra line outputs over the previous generation, and speaker switching technology for dual monitor setups. Two independent headphone outputs allow for both engineer and artist to monitor during recording sessions, and a pair of virtual loopback inputs allows you to capture a stereo feed of any combination of hardware input and software playback channels making podcasting, live streaming and sampling tasks easier. This unit is designed to stand up to days on the road, and connects straight to your Mac or PC via USB cable.

Included Software

Scarlett 18i8 Interface comes with all the software tools you need to get started: two comprehensive digital audio workstations, Ableton Live Lite, three months of Splice Sounds, three months of Avid Pro Tools Artist subscription, and Focusrite Plug-in Collective. Intuitive enough for beginners yet advanced enough to inspire real creativity with great-sounding effects.
